  1. 1. 160-year systems experiment in Australia Kirkegaard and Hunt, 2010 Is this where we are in Sub Saharan Africa? Nationalaveragewheat Can we reach here?
  2. 2. Systems methodology 1.Control 2.Best-bet (whatever it takes) 2 treatments • NOT multi-factorial, statistical design – not possible! • Treatments are not individual interventions • The treatments are how/what is adopted, in what combinations and how decisions made • Follow trajectories • Africa RISING – Ethiopian Highlands adopting this design • Other reactions – hahahahaha!! Haha ha!
